The last few weeks have been madness but I'm glad to replace the stress with a little reading.

Procrastinating today with a new read. I'm sure I'll get round to all the applications ....just after one more chapter!

I couldn't recommend this enough! I felt so much emotion as I travelled with Nuri and Afra, through their hardships and loss to hope! It's cleverly written and I love the linking word mid chapter that beautifully joins the past and present in Nuri's life.

This has been my favourite read of 2019 and I highly recommended this book. It is fictional but is so poignant to the struggles of the world today.

Thank you #Christylefteri #thebuzzproject

Ms.Story Thanks for putting this on my radar! 📚 4mo
Victoria_C I‘m in love with this book as well. One of the best I read this year. 2mo

This is a bold move away from my traditional genres, but I've thrown all caution to the wind and am going to try it ( espicially as it's so relevant to what we hear in the news today).

mvegabec Hi Sarah! Please let me know if you like it!😁 4mo
Sarah24 @mvegabec I'm about third through and enjoying it. It's quite sad but I like how it flits back and for between their life in Syria, the journey and life in the UK using a keyword to link them all. I've just come back from family gathering and got stuck back in! 4mo
mvegabec Nice!!! I think I would like it😁💗 4mo

Battered by camping trips and rough handling in my school bag, but I still love this book 🧡 My favourite in the series since I started reading them all those years ago.
This term has been so busy, I'm so glad to be able to sit down and finally finish it!

The last few weeks have been work, mark and apply for jobs on repeat. There's been no time for reading and I've been too stressed to try! But the sun today has brought some good news, a little time for reading and Mr Whippy to my street! Thank you Sun-day!

#sunshinevibes 🧡

wanderinglynn That looks delicious! 🤞🏻 in your job hunt! 💜 4mo
Kaye I‘m not sure who Mr Whippy is but I‘m guessing the ice cream truck ? One year when I was a kid, my dad‘s company went on strike. He worked 3 jobs that summer. One was an ice cream truck driver. One day he let me ride along, and to,d me I could have anything I wanted. Needless to say, I probably tried everything and came home green. 🤢 4mo
Sarah24 @Kaye that is the stuff of childhood dreams 😍 4mo

I don't care if it's illogical that Harry breaks rules and saves the magical world as a child, I still love it and nothing will change my mind 💚

Furthermore, the #forbiddenforest was a favourite scene to explore last summer in the London studios

From a simple case, you follow the detective Arrowood and Barnett as they discover more and end up chasing a completely different case.
I got frustrated that with all the information Arrowood was no closer, which emulates the feeling of the detective, but I could not put this down and loved the suspense it created.

This was Book 2, which explains the confusing start I had with the characters. Next time I'll read Book 1 first!

It's wonderful going back to an old favourite, and Harry Potter never disappoints.
The one thing that always baffles me with this book sleeve though - who is the pipe-smoking wizard?

This book is fantastic. You follow the Stoker family from childhood to their travels/race against Dracul. The flits between childhood, letters and diary entries mixed with the book present lends itself to fantastic story telling. I have not been able to put this book down.
The ending entwines with Stokers Dracula beautifully; Bram is visited by Mina Harker, reads her experience and decides to take action. I am left wanting more. #mustread

To the pupil I made a promise to, you were right! This book was lighthearted, fun and I enjoyed it!

My colleagues call me crazy for listening to do many pupil suggestions, I end up reading/watching/doing a lot of unusual things (recently watching Dr Who and agreeing to try bizarre food pairings), but it's so worth it and I value that they've thought about me and the relationships built from it.

#teachersoflitsy #quickread #book2of2019

ErickaS_Flyleafunfurled Definitely! You can learn a lot from kids! It‘s a good thing to be open to new ideas and experiences. I learn a lot from my 10-year-old son! 6mo

1. Avid crafter (knit, sew and crochet) and massive Mary Berry wannabe!
2. I tend to go for more historical fiction but I'm usually influenced by reviews, suggestions and (for shame) a pretty cover 🙈
3. Bonnie, a super white westie that doesn't like to 'dog', especially when raining.
4. Yes and yes!
5. I am a wool hoarder.
6. One of my favourite books is tagged in the post.

Thank you 💚 @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks

Outlander | Diana Gabaldon

It may seem a little far fetched, but this period drama/historical novel with time travel, magic stones, love and (a bit) gore really won me over!

So glad I persevered after the slump in the middle!

mellissimo Good to hear. I'm somewhere close to the middle of the book myself and I'm having a hard time trying to convince me to go on. Good to know that it will get better again :) 7mo

Outlander | Diana Gabaldon
post image

I'm half way through this book but am really struggling to carry on going! Just after other thoughts about Outlander and a little encouragement to keep going.
Has anybody else have this issue?

I'm hoping a good cup of tea and a few hours of dedication will put me back on track.

#outlander #teasoothesthesoul #doesitgetbetter

WanderingBookaneer I hated this one and wished I had bailed, but I know many people love it. 7mo
Liatrek I love the Outlander series ❤️ So, I would say keep going but I get the books are not for everyone. I tried to get my best friend to read it and she bailed only after a few chapters. 7mo
Birdsong28 Just keep going, I am reading them through Audiobooks and have found it the best way as it does get quite heavy. Also watched the series as I have found that helps as you can then picture the scene a bit better. You can do it 😘📚📖 7mo

scripturient Honestly, this is one of the very few cases where I prefer the TV show to the books. 🙈 7mo
DGRachel I really loved the first couple of books, but there are sections that can really be a slog. I‘d say keep going, but I also totally understand if you want to bail. I‘ve been trying to get through A Fiery Cross for a decade (book 5). 🤦🏻‍♀️ 7mo
ErickaS_Flyleafunfurled I bailed early on this one! You‘re not alone if you just can‘t take it anymore 😁 I think I‘ll try the TV show instead 7mo
Sarah24 @WanderingBookaneer @Liatrek @Birdsong28 @scripturient @DGRachel @ErickaS_Flyleafunfurled Thank you ladies for your help! I finally managed it and finished it this evening! I did like the book, pushed through the slump and I couldn't put it down! The next one ia already ordered but the series is a bit (a lot) less demanding and I love it just as much! 7mo

"To forget would be not only dangerous but offensive; to forget the dead would be akin to killing them a second time."

I read a lot around the topics I teach, but this has to be one of the most poignant books by far.
